1. I make lemon syrup for tea
Haven't tried it with mint -- looks like a good idea. Thanks.

2. How big is a sprig?
As long as a piece of string? :shrug:

3. A small sprig is like the top part of the mint.
Now I just got back from the pond (that's were it grows best here at the Woody End) and the mint is almost played out and going to seed. However the flavor is more intense so I use less.
